A loan helped to purchase fabric, accessories, appliques, and other products.

Vecinas Unidas Group's story

The group called Vecinas Unidas is in its first loan cycle. They are female heads of household who struggle for a better quality of life for their loved ones, so that they do not have to experience any type of hardship.

One of the members is Melizza who works in the service of event decoration. Previously, she was unable to increase the variety of the services she offered to her customers because she did not have enough capital. But, this has improved through the help which the foundation offers her within this group.

She asks for the loan to be able to purchase fabric, accessories, appliques, and other products to be able to continue with her work as she has been doing.
